In an interview with Esquire in July 2012, Sarah Silverman talked about being nude onscreen for the first time during the locker room shower scene. She said, "Taking all my own mishigas out of it, it's so unsexualized. I'm standing like a caveman. It's very dead. Now, I'm trying to be positive about myself, because I feel like even if you're self-deprecating it's still a kind of self-obsession. So I'm trying to just say I'm a human body -- it works. If I were somebody else looking at my character, I'd be like, 'She's beautiful.' I'm practicing. I'm not succeeding." She pointed out that having several older women in that scene added to the unsexualized feeling. "Women are naked in front of each other every day. It's a very common, comfortable thing. You're trying on clothes, or you're in the shower at the Y. But the female nudity in movies is always sexualized. Sarah [Polley, director of Take This Waltz] said, 'It would be interesting to see this everyday occurrence that's never mirrored on film.' There's no music telling you how to feel. There's no sexy lighting. I keep using the word jarring. It isn't funny or dramatic. It just is."
You're good news. You know that?
Margot's house (62 Mackenzie Crescent) and Woodbine Beach are on opposite sides of Toronto's downtown, and walking the distance between them takes more than two hours. Sarah Polley acknowledged this inconsistency, saying "It's a romanticized, idealized Toronto where we would have access to the waterfront on [the west] side of town".
